Neville & Titus O’Neil In-Ring Segment:

On the other side, the future WWE Cruiserweight Champion Akira Tozawa. Neville calls himself the King of the CruiserWeights’. He’s been sitting on that ivory tower, but Neville will be no match for the Power of Tozawa. Neville comes out to interrupt Titus. Neville says that Titus is a charismatic leader. The problem is that all of this is a fantasy.
It’s a cruel facade. Let’s take a look at what really happens when a clients signs with Titus Worldwide. We see a recap of Apollo Crews getting destroyed by Braun Strowman. To clarify, Apollo Crews, the man who just had a beautiful baby daughter, and his client. Titus fed him to the monster. The reality is that Titus doesn’t care about Apollo Crews or Akira Tozawa. All Titus cares about is his dirty dollar bills. Titus has two choices. He can prove Neville wrong and show compassion and concern for his client and forfeit the match on Sunday.
